Review: Love this tent, in some ways. Great price on ACK, light, easy to set up. It is a bit like sleeping in a coffin. Room for only the most essential inside the tent. Had more condensation inside the next morning than I was expecting. The vestibule of the fly is so small I could only put my boots there, sideways at that. If you are taller than 5'8" or wide body this is not the tent for you. There is enough room in the middle to sit up and that's it.

Review: Ive been researching 1 person backpacking tents under $100.00 and kept coming across this tent with excellent reviews most of the time. Ive not gone out yet, but I did seal the seams and floor and set it up in my backyard. Easy to set up with enough room inside to sit up and roll on my side while sleeping. Throw the steel stakes away and get aluminum or titanium I got 10 aluminum stakes. A small vestibule by the entrance offers some room for boots or a pack I plan to keep my stove there for my mandatory morning cup of coffee an even smaller semblance of a vestibule is on the non- entrance side which can hold smaller items. I like the vent on top for air flow and understand the importance of orienting the tent with the vent facing the wind. Minimum of 2 stakes to pitch with up to 10 if it needs to be guyied down due to winds. Reasonably light. Ive seen a number of pictures where the tent does not appear taught. I got mine tight as a drum very easy. I batted it around to simulate wind action and it remained nice and tight. There is some space inside at either side while laying down enough to store gear you may want access to at night while sleeping additional layers of clothing etc. The mesh will provide plenty of air flow during dry summer nights when I will sleep without the rain fly. Im happy with the purchase and the price was right with an additional 20% coupon. I believe this will be a great tent and with reasonable care should last a long time. Delivery was prompt and so far Ive enjoyed my Austin Kayak purchases. My tent was shipped in the original Eureka box which clearly advertises the contents and was left at my door. This concerned me because anyone could have seen the contents and taken it. I gave Austin Kayak my feedback regarding this shipping practice.

Review: 4 stars only because its not freestanding. Im 61 and have plenty of room for me, my long sleep pad, and a 35L pack. Bigger packs would have to be stored in the vestibule. Theres space at your feet for the small pack & your boots as well. i can also sit up easily without brushing my head on the top. 0 condensation as well, but it was a dry night here. The vent works well if you face it into the wind. I also turned the tent into the wind & opened the rain fly over the entry and it was relatively cool. I live in TX & this tent will do fine here & I dont see an issue with it being used anywhere. Great tent!
